David Johnson: Photographer of the Fillmore

Daniel Johnson was Ansel Adam's first African American student in the mid 20th century in San Francisco at what would be come SFAI. He shot wonderful images of the Fillmore in its heyday.

Exhibit: David Johnson Photography Retrospective
Exhibit Curators: David J Christensen, Director, Harvey Milk Photo Center and Susanna Lucia Lamaina 
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 61–4p.m.
Dates: September  6 – October 19
Locations: Harvey Milk Photo Center, 50 Scott St.
Viewing hours: Tues-Thursday, 4-8 p.m., Sat & Sunday noon–4:30 p.m.

David Johnson, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., was the first African American student of Ansel Adams. In Adams’ school he was advised to photograph his own neighborhood and document the faces and places with which he was most familiar. He subsequently became an important chronicler of black life in San Francisco in the middle part of the 20th century.

 After his return to Jacksonville, Florida in 1946 from the US Navy, David Johnson was certain of one thing, and that was that he wanted to become a photographer. What was uncertain was where he would find the opportunity to study photography. He happened to read an article in Popular Photography that Ansel Adams was to become the Director of Photography at the California School of Fine Arts (now San Francisco Art Institute). Johnson immediately wrote to Mr. Adams seeking a spot in the first class. He mentioned that he was a Negro. Ansel sent him a telegram saying the class was filled, and that it did not matter that he was a Negro, but his name would be placed on the list in the event someone cancelled .Within a week he got another message indicating there was a place in the class. Johnson arrived in San Francisco in 1946 shortly after his 19th birthday. Minor White met him at the ferry building in San Francisco and they took the streetcar to the Ansel Adams’ house. He stayed there until he could find a place to live in the Fillmore District, the black section of the city,a place that would shape his future.

 

7/11 - "Be/Longing": Summer Photography Show (San Francisco)

If you're in San Francisco, be sure to get to this wonderful three person photo show opening on Friday evening, July 11th.

Fouladi Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by three women photographers. The works in the show vary in content, but all investigate the human issues of isolation, containment and longing. Inherent in our existence is the need to balance the conundrum between being an individual, physically separate, yet also requiring a vital connection to others to thrive.

"Be/Longing": Summer Photography Show
Featuring new work by Nina Dietzel, Darija Jelincic and Anne Veraldi
Opening reception: Friday, July 11th, 6 to 8pm

Nina Dietzel's "Paris Series" diptychs juxtapose images which cleverly reveal the universal tension between masculine and feminine archetypes. 

Darija Jelincic's works on view are from her "Escapes" series, beautifully capturing vignettes of human culture clustered together against the great expanse of the sea and the sky. 

Anne Veraldi's photographs are a selection from her "Outside-In Series", which depict both found and remnant artifacts encapsulated within the iconic mason jar, as a way of preserving wistful memories from the past.
